Taco Tuesday Casserole

Rated as 4.6 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great Mexican dish for our bigger family. Could be made ahead for potlucks too! This recipe I threw together with what I had on had one night that sounded good together! Could be done with chicken as alternative too. I served this with cooked spinach and put my portion of casserole over the spinach."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until almost browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Add onion; cook and stir until beef is browned and onion is softened, about 5 minutes more. Mix water and taco seasoning into beef mixture; simmer until water evaporates, about 5 minutes.
  3. Line the prepared baking dish with tortillas and top with 1/2 of the ground beef mixture. Spoon 1/2 of the corn over the beef layer and top with 1/3 of the Cheddar cheese. Crush tortilla chips over cheese layer. Repeat layers with remaining ingredients, ending with Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and olives.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, 15 to 20 minutes.

Good, quick and easy: the trifecta!

I changed it up a bit. Substituting macaroni for rice, adding black beans and putting chips on the side as a scoop. It came out really good though!

I omitted the black olives, but otherwise my husband ate the whole thing in 3 days. It was easy and different to have something other than tacos on Tuesday. I did add extra cheese and he ate i...

I made this the other night instead of tacos because we didn't have enough shells for regular tacos. I was a little skeptical when assembling it, but it turned out great! I used up the 4 taco s...

I made it and we really liked it. Even my picky eaters loved it. I made some white Mexican cheese dip and added a drizzle over the ground beef layer.

Good...basically tacos in casserole form. I used Bill Echols' Taco Seasoning I, so I used the amount of seasoning and water that I normally use for taco meat. The one thing my husband said it wa...

It was really good. I topped it with Ortega taco ranch sauce and sour cream after it cooled a little bit and also used Doritos instead of regular tortilla chips.

This was very good, but I was confused about the recipe calling for 8 tortillas chips. I used most of a bag but I think it was too much. And I used 6 flour tortillas to cover the bottom. I c...

used soft flour tortillas, added a layer of rice, and served with a side of guacamole and chips. yum!!
